I bet there's a lot of Steam users have one or few games like Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, Modern Warfare 2 or anything that requires Steam to run. Few friends of mine has Steam account and almost never log in and they have 2 games at most (TF2 and L4D).

I'm exact opposite, I have over 150 games on Steam. Steam FTW!
